Have you ever wondered how to make a beaded bead? The technique is simple and once you see it demonstrated picture by picture you will succeed with a few practice beads. I created this 8 page step by step tutorial with photographs so that you can make 12M beaded beads with size 15/0 seed beads. You will like how the smaller beads snug together creating a visually smooth bead. These beads are perfect for earrings, brooches, necklaces and bracelets. Not into making jewelry? You can use them for lampshade fringe, napkin rings, wine glass charms, etc. This tutorial is for personal use only. Please do share or distribute. However, handmade beads are a labor of love and I do encourage you to make these beads, incorporate them into your designs and feel free to sell online or anywhere else. I want you to enjoy these beads as much as I do with no limitations. Thank you and enjoy!

PJ Studio is an extension of Preserve Studio. I joined the Craftsy community because I want to share my knowledge and experience with other beginning bead enthusiasts. Many of the bead patterns in my shop are suitable for beginners that have the basic skills of tying square knots and weaving in ends. I will show you the rest with clear and concise instructions and pictures along the way. Earrings are my specialty because they require small quantities of beads and may be finished within an hour or two depending upon your pace. Enjoy earrings in numerous colors for every season and have a few spares for gift giving! I have many ready to go items at my Etsy Shop. Come visit me at
